C.U.D.O.S. (Crewkerne United Dramatic and Operatic Society), as the name suggests, is based in Crewkerne and we put on four shows a year in The Victoria Hall. They are all great fun to be a part of, not to mention a hit with our audiences.
Known on the circuit as one of the friendliest societies in the area, we have a membership that tends to stay with us and we always welcome new members, and so the society keeps growing. Our membership fees are the lowest around and we have no rehearsal or shows fees; once you have paid the annual membership everything else is covered.
Every year we stage a pantomime in January, a play in May, a musical in September and a Christmas Concert in December.
The 'C.U.D.O.S. family' is a great group to be a member of. We hold several social functions throughout the year including quiz nights, treasure hunts, a barbeque, a dinner dance and the inimitable frog racing night, all of which are very well attended.
There are many ways to get involved with C.U.D.O.S. so if you are interested please visit our CONTACT page to start your first steps to becoming a member of our friendly society.
In 2001, C.U.D.O.S. was formed from the unification of Crewkerne Players, the amateur drama group of the town, and from Crewkerne Amateur Operatic Society.
For many years these two societies had existed happily side by side, with Crewkerne Players doing two plays in the town and a panto each year and the Operatic doing two shows, one of which was at the Octagon. However, once the Operatic decided to only perform in Crewkerne it soon became obvious that the same people were members of both societies and the committees were virtually interchangeable. So, to increase the membership of both while enabling members to only pay one fee, Crewkerne United Dramatic and Operatic Society, C.U.D.O.S. for short, was born.
This was the best move the societies had ever made and C.U.D.O.S. went from strength to strength, gaining in reputation and status throughout Somerset and winning many awards and nominations in the Somerset Federation of Drama competitions for plays, musicals and pantos.
The Southampton Musical Society has been performing in the Southampton and Winchester area for over 80 years and have performed in such prestigious theatres as The Gaumont (now The Mayflower), The Nuffield and more recently, Theatre Royal Winchester. We are renowned throughout the area for top quality shows. Our previous shows range from the traditional such as Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and Me and My Girl to more recent releases including the discotastic Boogie Nights and the hilarious The Producers!
We also put together concerts to be able to perform great songs from musicals that we wouldnt normally get the chance to do.
We are lucky to have a great range of age in our membership allowing us to tackle some great shows and numbers. We also are lucky to have directors and choreographers in the society who are up for any challenge we give them.
We are also a sociable society, with regular social events like our famous Quiz nights down the London Hotel, summer BBQ's, Fun Nights as well as a few nights on the town.
We rehearse on Tuesday's and Thursday's at 7:30pm to 10pm at St Mark's Institute, Victoria Road, Woolston.
Abingdon Drama Club was 70 years old in 2014!
Each year ADC produces three shows at the Unicorn Theatre in Abingdon. These are an eclectic mix of modern dramas, classics and comedies. Also, every other year, we produce our very popular ADC pantomime. Have a look at our archive to find out more about the wide range of shows we have produced over the past 70 years.
Once you join the club you can take part in every show and activity. You do not need to audition to become a club member. There are castings for every production and every member, new or old, has the same chance of being cast in a leading role. All you need in order to be cast is enthusiasm and commitment.
Please get in touch with us if you are interested in getting involved backstage. There are a huge number of different jobs that need to be done in order to get a show onto the stage and lots of them do not involve any acting.
ADC is a very friendly club with a family atmosphere. New members soon become part of the family. Theatre takes a lot of time and effort to produce but the rewards are huge. Get in touch to find out more about ADC and about how you could be part of the next 70 years!
We are on Facebook and Twitter and you can click through to those social media sites via our website: www.abingdon-drama-club.com or you can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
GLOC is London's leading G&S Society, and one of the only amateur operatic societies both to rehearse and perform in Central London. As a result, we attract a membership largely of young professionals who work in the centre of town, together with some students attending one of London's universities and colleges.
We perform at least one fully-staged G&S production, accompanied by a professional orchestra, every season and supplement this with other staged and semi-staged concert performances, together with other opportunities to improve our members' singing skills and repertoire knowledge. We are a very sociable society, and organise events and parties for our members, find occasional busking opportunities, and invariably find time for a catch-up with each other in the pub after rehearsals. We pride ourselves on being friendly and welcoming to new members.
In 2013 GLOC made their debut performance at the International G&S Festival in Buxton with Patience, and performed again in Harrogate in 2014 with The Mikado.

The Monday Players drama society is based at Escrick, a small village, about seven miles south of York City centre. Our venue, recently refurbished, is the village hall, where we have produced live theatre for the last eighteen years.
Members come from wide area, ten miles radius or more, including York and Selby, but we also have the fellowship of family, friends and many other supporters who like to be involved not only in productions but also social events such as theatre trips, Summer garden party and Christmas celebrations. We are welcoming, enthusiastic and supportive group; we have high standards of performance and production; we enjoy immensely the recreational benefits of our activities.
In December 2013 we celebrated our twentieth anniversary and fortieth production since our foundation by revisiting our first production, when a small group decided to perform Season’s Greetings, by Alan Ayckbourn; the stage, set and technical effects were very modest indeed. Since 1993 we have prospered, developed and maintained our stage craft, technical expertise and the acquisition of equipment, costume, props and furniture. We stage two productions a year – May and November – and enjoy the patronage of many people in the area.
Some members enjoy performing; others enjoy being part of our production teams; some enjoy both! Every production provides opportunities to act, to get involved in set construction, become part of the stage crew, to assist with transport, lighting, sound, special effects, publishing, front of house or indeed, helping to make a welcome cuppa at one of our rehearsals. Rehearsals take place on Sunday and Monday evenings and our two production dates fall in May and November each year. Generally members are sixteen years or more but there can be exceptions. If you are interested in becoming involved, in whatever way, with The Monday Players, please contact our Chair, Nicki Clay, on email@example.com and you will be warmly invited to meet Monday Players ‘at work’ and decide for yourself.
For ticket sales and information about the next production, please telephone 01904 728303 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
